Nothing better than starting a new year with thrilling discoveries!
Therefore, let's get together and have a tour at the iconic Textile Museum (St. Gallen)!
We will have the chance to discover their temporary exhibition "Furor Floralis" dedicated to the representation of
flora in design textiles.
Of course, it's also a great chance to go through their impressive permanent collection, exhibiting the national and international history of textiles.
St.Gallen, as you possibly know, is of one the most important cradle of textile industry in Switzerland, so it's also a piece of national history we'll discover following needlework and masterpieces conserved in the Textile Museum.
